What to eat…

I found a cool site that has some sample menus. So, here’s what I can eat (after 8 weeks or so of mushy stuff). This all comes from this site

Breakfast

½ cup fat-free cottage cheese
 
Mid-morning
8 oz. skim or 1% milk
Sip 16 oz. of water or non-caloric beverage throughout the morning
 
Lunch
3oz. lentil soup or chili (slightly mashed)
 
 
Mid-afternoon
Sip 16 oz. of water or non-caloric beverage throughout the afternoon
 
Dinner
¼ cup scrambled egg (needs to be ‘runny’)
¼ cup Greek yogurt
 
Evening
8 oz. skim or 1% milk
Sip 16 oz. of water or non-caloric beverage throughout the evening
 
I like most of those things!
Let’s see what else there is…
 
Breakfast

¼ c. low-fat cottage cheese
¼ c. diced peaches
 
Dinner

1-2 thin slices each lean deli turkey breast & 1 slice reduced-fat Swiss cheese, rolled (with 1 T. light mayonnaise if necessary)
 
Breakfast

¼ c. scrambled Eggbeaters® (moist)
2 oz. reduced-fat shredded cheddar
¼ c. diced pears
 
Lunch

¼ c. canned chicken
(made with 2 tablespoon plain fat-free yogurt)
 
Lunch

2 thin slices lean deli ham
2 thin slices reduced-fat cheese
1 T. mustard
 
Dinner

½ c. chili w/ beans
2-3 whole grain crackers
 

Breakfast

2 slices turkey sausage

¼-½ c. oatmeal

 

Lunch

½ c. hummus

¼ c. fresh dipping veggies (cherry tomatoes, celery, red peppers, cucumber, carrots, etc)

 

Dinner

3 oz. shredded pot roast with low fat gravy

¼ c. cooked carrots

 

Breakfast

½ c. fat-free, artificially sweetened yogurt (any flavor)

¼ c. mixed fresh berries

 

Lunch

¼-½ c. salad greens

2 oz. chicken strips

2 Tbsp. Italian dressing

 

Dinner

2oz. tender pork loin

¼ baked sweet potato w/ 1 T. light margarine

 

The following foods may be difficult to eat, especially for the first few months:

  • Tough meats – dry, gristly meats may be difficult to digest. Meats (chicken, steak, burger, ham) should be moist and cut into very small pieces about the size of a pencil eraser. Go slowly.
  • Bread – fresh, doughy bread can form a ball and “gum up” the opening from the stomach
  • Pasta – pasta may form a paste and be more difficult to pass
  • Seeds and skins of fruits and vegetables, dried fruit, fibrous vegetables like corn, asparagus, and celery
  • Nuts and peanut butter

There are so many good resources on that site! Hopefully they’re accurate based on what they tell me next week. At least it gives me an idea of what I may be eating come a couple months from now.
